You guys are marking the heroic badge bracers as the stamina bracers. Yeah... they got more stam on them, but... (for me at least) i can get more hp wearing the VR bracers just because w/o them i need an avoidance trinket. So yeah, VR bracers ftw imo, i can change my trinks around for more... spell dmg or stam, or w/e.

We're 6/6 and 3/4 T5 and have been farming VR since September, and have yet to see a Warp Spring (my main is a rogue and he cries every time he sees that fucking war helm)

So if my guild is not at VR yet (Kara farm, Gruul/Maggy clear, Za 2bosses on farm) would getting the badge bracers be a decent choice for me, i have everything from kara just waiting for boots/shoulders from ZA which simple wont drop when im there =(

I ofc got the Kara onces but i considering the badge onces alot and theres really nothing else left im that interested in until the new badge vendor is unlocked (buying aldor pants and tank ring the moment that happens).

Anyway from what i can read it sounds like the badge one would be better on bosses just want to confirm it before i waste my badges ;p

If my gear looks awful its proberly my 5man gear :P
